Is it just me or does everyone love the...

Jacka$$es in the 25-30' center consoles/bowriders who slow down so that their bow is pointed toward the sky and they are dragging tanker sized waves behind them before passing you?

I know that I have one of the smaller trawlers on here 34' Mainship mk III and sometimes there just isn't room for me to manuever so that the wave doesn't strike me quartering from the stern (this is my boats Achilles heel [no pun intended]).

David - It's not the size of your boat. We get those clowns all the time in the LI Sound. Doesn't matter how big or small you are, it throws you all over the place. Too bad we can't exercize a little home grown justice for those guys, but that's life nowadays. Here's a shot of my other boat equipped for just those kind of days, or for dealing with the occasional unfriendly dockmaster we come upon now and then.

*No worse than the ones in trawlers that go 1-2 knots faster than their hull speed through no wake zones/marina areas thinking that trawlers don't throw wakes...

There's just more of them!!!

Carl that's nice but it really eats up the room on the flybridge. I think some subsurface weaponry would be nice!
